It is with great sadness that I have to report the suddenpassing away of Ron Hill (Linda Smallwood father). Ron (with his wife Audrey) was a regular in the racingpaddock from the mid 1980’s through to 2000 and many of you who were around then,would probably have known him as ‘DAD’

His dedicated support and involvement with Bradfield College hovercraft made him a vital partof the racing team. His quite and supportive role in nurturing novice drivers(at least 3 every year), gave his ‘pupils’ the necessary confidence to go outand race. He was directly responsible for the many trophies that the Collegeracing team won and was especially proud of the Team winning 2 JuniorChampionships.

His legacy of quiet support, with an eye to detail and preparationwas passed on to all who were involved with him, and has resulted in producing4 World Champions.

Not bad for someone who never went in a hovercraft!!

Sadly missed but won’t be forgotten.
